SDSU assistant Chris Acker just made us aware on @JonAndJim that over 50 former Aztecs that played for Steve Fisher and Brian Dutcher will be at the Final Four on Saturday. What an incredible bond.
Because few people service a mortgage for all 30 years (they get divorced, refinance, move or die), mortgage rates are compared to the 10-Year Treasury Note.
While Treasury yields have fallen, mortgage rates are stuck in the mid-6% area.
Huge spread vs. 10-year = 304bps.

I liked it. Whoever had it was not someone who chased the mythical Jones. There was an air of contentment there. Even some stained glass which was a very nice touch.
Give the house a few more years and it will be historic and need to be preserved. After all we need examples of the grew like topsy style. (Smaller than the Winchester Mystery house). Out of curiosity when did the single wall construction stop in San Diego? Before or after the end of knob and tube wiring?
20 years ago I hated the idea of tearing something like that down. Alas, time has changed me. It’s gonna take a surfer with a degree in compact structure architecture to accept that challenge at 1.9 million though.
Uh… Jim you mentioned towards the end re: lot size that the pine trees aren’t going anywhere. Can’t they just be cut down?
This property represents a testament to a great success. The owner lived in a paradise setting in a home that provided shelter and comfort. And went out with it paid off, as a legacy to his offspring. Granted the “TRAVERTINE” is missing, and there is no infinity pool or $50,000 “Appliance Package” but it looks like it got the job done for a lot of great years. What a great way to live.
Uh, actually it reminded me of Rosarito Beach houses I am familiar with. Damp, dark, uncomfortable, questionable electric. Fabulous for a weekend at the beach but not a place to actually reside.
Looks just like my grandparents old house…Too bad they settled in National City in 1945 and not Del Mar!
The Torrey Pines are protected and you aren’t allowed to cut them down unless you can prove that they put lives at risk.
No-techie, I think I agree. I’ll keep looking for that 4,500 sq.ft. “Bomber” REO deal in CV.
DORK, oh the snark! It appears you have misinterpreted what I posted. My personal views: smaller is better, no child is deprived if they have to share a bedroom, garages are for cars, not excess possessions, and TV’s are not a necessity but room for a piano is. That said, I would love to see the results of a home inspection on that house. I’m betting it is a code nightmare besides being run down and a functionally obsolescent warren of wasted space.
No-techie, just pullin’ your chain. It is obvious that place has served out it’s time, but then again I’m a little ragged and have numerous code violations! But I would have loved to have spent the last half century right there!
Agreed on spending the last half century there. i just would have kept the place up better. How much do you think any purchaser would have to put into it to get it into reasonable shape? (sans travertine and stainless, of course)
But if you intend to stay until they carry you out feet first, then do you really care how modern the place is as long as it works? This is the older view a home is just a place to live not an investment, and likley with prop 13 and paid off, then house did not cost much to operate. If you intend to leave the disposal of the house to your heirs then why fix what is not broken if it does not bother you. (If something bothers you then you fix it but…)
Maybe as part of Carson’s deal for the property above it, his younger brother will buy this.
Definitely a tear down.
